I saw Ennis, Farah and Weir during both Olympics/Paralympics. I was there at The Aquatic Centre when Simmonds' won her amazing 400m freestyle. The noise was deafening there; the atmosphere electric. She will get my "official" BBC vote next week, Here's a link to see how nice she is:
I'm partly biased 'cos I was there when Weir won the 800 metres but winning four gold medals over four medium-to-long distances over ten days is incredible, the atmosphere and excitement when he was racing was intense and I think it's a brilliant backstory as well.
